New Jersey Getting a Haunted Boardwalk Empire?


One of my favorite parts of living in New York was the ability to chow down at the famed Jekyll and Hyde restaurant. Sure the food sucks, but that’s not what you go there for. It’s all about atmosphere and I can’t think of anywhere else you could get into a conversation with a haunted moose head over chicken fingers.

That is until now. According to the Press of Atlantic City developers in Atlantic City are working hard to create the Hollywood Horror Cafe, a horror-themed restaurant and wax museum, and they’re doing so with some well acquainted figures of the genre.

[The folks involved] “were brought together by Sara Karloff, daughter of Hollywood horror legend Boris Karloff. Another famous horror movie name, Lugosi, also is part of the project. Bela Lugosi Jr., a California attorney and son of one of the best-known horror actors in the genre’s history, has provided legal assistance for the development group.”

“Sara Karloff and Bela Lugosi Jr. also have agreed to help the group through their entertainment industry contacts and with licensing deals for horror memorabilia from the Karloff and Lugosi estates,” said Joe Camarota, an engineer and former casino construction official who is part of the development group.

About time. Check out some early concept artwork of the establishment below.
